Due to competitive pressure and the need for a lead generation tool for their learning analytics platform, Watershed decided to create the Essentials LRS product. The challenge with this product was to make all the reports work with zero configuration by the user.

I started the project by researching the types of data points that could be extrapolated from any data source connected to Watershed. There were three key concepts that came out of this research: Activities, People, and Actions.

I took these concepts and designed a flexible report type. This enabled users to drill down into items they found interesting to get more insight into their learning and training activities.

After designing all the reporting, I shifted my attention to designing a walkthrough as part of the onboarding process for this product.

In addition to doing all the product design for this project, I also produced all the walkthrough videos that were displayed as part of the onboarding process.
